Fantasy playoffs week 1 pickups; deep Panthers; Canucks return; Stars schedule

Apr 19, 03:45 PM
Pete and Rob are joined by guest "Waiver Wire" James Harding to identify the best pickups for what is the first week of the fantasy hockey playoffs in many leagues. The guys touch on the Canucks' return to the ice after a long break because of COVID-19 protocol and whether they can rally around the situation and make a Stanley Cup Playoff push. The hosts also discuss ways to tap into the Stars, who still have games in hand, are playing well and have four upcoming games against the Red Wings, and also the Panthers, who are rolling three strong lines after some sneaky moves and have players worth adding at every position. In addition to the Monday slate, players and topics covered in this show include Sam Bennett, Anthony Duclair, Brandon Montour, Denis Gurianov, Chandler Stephenson, Ilya Sorokin, Igor Shesterkin, Nick Foligno, Taylor Hall, Anthony Mantha, Esa Lindell, Cole Caufield, Anton Khudobin vs. Jack Campbell, Braden Holtby, the Avalanche's COVID-19 protocol situation and the competition for the Calder Trophy.
